Self-inversive polynomials, curves, and codes
(American Mathematical Society, 2016-03-05)
We study connections between self-inversive and self-reciprocal polynomials, reduction theory of binary forms, minimal models of curves, and formally self-dual codes
Combinatorial Algorithm for Quadratic Programs with Laplacian Structure
(Utilitas Mathematica, 2016)
An algorithm is presented that uses a mostly combinatorial approach to solve a family of convex quadratic programs over box constraints. It is proved that for convex programs with the required structure, the ...
On generalized superelliptic Riemann surfaces
(eprint arXiv:1609.09576, 2016-11-01)
A closed Riemann surface X, of genus g ≥ 2, is called a generalized superelliptic curve of level n ≥ 2 if it admits an order n conformal automorphism τ so that X/hτihas genus zero and τ is central in Aut(X); the cyclic ...
Cyclic curves over the reals
(eprint arXiv:1501.01559, 2014-11-15)
In this paper we study the automorphism groups of real curves admitting a regular meromorphic function f of degree p, so called real cyclic p-gonal curves. When p = 2 the automorphism groups of real hyperelliptic curves ...
A Model for Chagas Disease with Oral and Congenital Transmission
This work presents a new mathematical model for the domestic transmission of Chagas disease, a parasitic disease affecting humans and other mammals throughout Central and South America. The model takes into account congenital ...
Mësimdhënia e matematikës nëpërmjet problemeve klasike
(Albanian J. Math., 2016-12-03)
In this paper we discuss how teaching of mathematics for middle school and high school students can be improved dramatically when motivation of concepts and ideas is done through the classical problems and the history of ...
Isogenous elliptic subcovers of genus two curves
We prove that for $N=2,3, 5, 7$ there are only finitely many genus two curves $\X$ (up to isomorphism) defined over $\Q$ with $(2, 2)$-split Jacobian and $\Aut (\X)\iso V_4$, such that their elliptic subcovers are ...
Dynamic contact of two GAO beams
The dynamic contact of two nonlinear Gao beams that are connected with a joint is modeled, analyzed, and numerically simulated. Contact is modeled with either (i) the normal compliance condition, or (ii) the unilateral ...
Applications of Subset Selection Procedures and Bayesian Ranking Methods in Analysis of Traffic Fatality Data
(WIREs Computational Statistics, 2016-11)
Nonparametric and parametric subset selection procedures are used in the analysis of state motor vehicle traffic fatality rates (MVTFRs), for the years 1994 through 2012, to identify subsets of states that contain the ...
